Molnár (Miller) Rock

The most famous of the Hámor limestone rocks is the Molnár (Miller) Rock. Not only because visitors can enjoy a gorgeous view to Lillafüred, but also a sad legend is connected to it. A hiking trail from the Csanyik Valley leads to the rock.

A wealthy landlord wanted to marry the daughter of the former miller of a fulling mill. However, the pretty miller girl felt true love for the young mill-man working in the mill.

When the miller ordered his daughter to be the wife of the wealthy suitor, the two lovers decided that if they could stay with each other, they would rather choose death. They climbed hand in hand up the nearby rock wall and threw themselves down into the abyss.

The limestone rock is therefore named as Molnár (Miller) Rock as a memory of the sad love story with the cross on the top standing as a memento.
